The Detective Branch of police has arrested ASM Nazmus Sadat, one of the accused in the Buet student Abrar Fahad murder case, as he was trying to flee to India.
Dhaka Metropolitan Police's Deputy Commissioner Masudur Rahman confirmed the matter today.
Detective sources said Sadat was arrested from Katla Bazar, a border area in Dinajpur district, in the morning. He is a student of the 17th batch of Mechanical Engineering Department at Buet.
He attempted to flee to India to evade arrest in the murder case, the source added.
With this, police have made 20 arrests in the sensational murder case.
Abrar Fahad, 21, a resident of Sher-e-Bangla Hall and a second-year student of Buet, was beaten to death on October 7 night by some Chhatra League men over his alleged affiliation with Jamat-e-Islami's student wing Chhatra Shibir.
